    Custom Handling the Android Back Button with React Navigation


    In this lesson we'll explore setting up a stack navigator in React Navigation. We'll create a custom component that uses withNavigation to allow us to listen to navigation transitions. Using the BackHandler from React Native we can ask the screen if custom needs are required when the hardware back button is pressed. Finally we'll prompt the user if they want to navigate.
